• Overview

Centrus® Points Geocoding Data Set

• The Centrus® Points Geocoding Data Set provides unrivaled accuracy with Parcel centroid level geocoding in the United States through all Centrus® GeoStan based solutions.
• Centrus® Points are based on parcel polygons acquired directly from counties across the United States and conflated monthly with postal data from the USPS® providing address and geocoding accuracy required in applications for all business implementations.
• Points are available with Assessor Parcel Number and Elevation attributes in addition to the standard address attributes and point geocode. The APN attribute is the Parcel identifier that enables users to retrieve additional property information from third party property reporting firms. The Elevation attribute is derived from USGS Digital Elevation Model data.

Centrus® Enhanced Geocoding Data Set

• The Centrus® Enhanced Geocoding Data Set is designed for address level geocoding. Where an address level geocode is not available, the Enhanced data set provides cascading accuracy at the ZIP+4, ZIP+2, and ZIP Code level to return the highest level of geocode for the address using Centrus® GeoStan technology.

Description
Global 360 is a comprehensive database of named locations. It is aimed at organizations who need to search, reference and geocode locations world-wide.

With over 900,000 entries from countries down to localised places of interest, Global 360 is perfect for spatially enabling web applications such as store/dealer/service locators, office messaging, asset tracking, social networking and geographic ‘check-in’ services.

Global 360 is ideal for any business organization that requires a consistent global location resource for web-based search, geo-coding and reverse geo-coding. It includes support for localisation and forms a valuable component of any enterprise-wide Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI).
